Summary from Goodreads: 

 Is the sweet town of Appleton ripe for scandal?

Consider the facts:
       Appleton Elementary School has a new librarian named Rita B. Danjerous. (Say it fast.)
       Principal Noah Memree barely remembers hiring her.
      Ten-year-old Reid Durr is staying up way too late reading a book from Ms. Danjerous's controversial "green dot" collection.
       The new school board president has mandated a student dress code that includes white gloves and bow ties available only at her shop.

Sound strange? Fret not. Appleton's fifth-grade sleuths are following the money, embracing the punny, and determined to the get to the funniest, most rotten core of their town's juiciest scandal. Don't miss this seedy saga from the creators of the award-winning Three-Ring Rascals and 43 Old Cemetery Road series!


I have to say, I was a little worried about the formatting of this book, but I was gladly surprised. This story was fun and exciting. It made my loath certain characters and love other. The way the book is laid out in email form, really gave the pages a visual change. It was almost like having a picture on every page. I'm glad I read this book. 

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
